Here we present the average clock speed for each graphics card while running the 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra stress test 20 times. We use GPU-Z to record the GPU core frequency during the Fire Strike Ultra runs. We calculate the average core frequency during the entire 20-run test to present here.
Clock speed is an interesting metric for the new AMD cards. The RX 5700 XT has a rated ‘game clock’ of up to 1755MHz, but based on our 3DMark testing we saw the core average 1822MHz under load – so about 70MHz faster than expected. It will be interesting to see how far custom cards can push the frequencies.
